What is a Rep Team?

Rep Teams will be fielded in all age divisions from U11 and up (in both minor and female) and will compete as "A" or "B" divisional teams. If there are sufficient numbers, a "C" Team may exist in a division. An A must exist in a division before a B Team can be established. There is a larger commitment to this team as it will travel more often and this cost will be split among all players traveling. These teams are formed during the house league season and will compete in potential games and tournaments leading up to the final end of season Provincial Tournament. Provincial tournament locations are typically announced by Hockey NL in early February and could be anywhere in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
